About us

I LOVE_BE LOVE (I love_be or be love) “We do not believe that there is another way than to do things from love, and this implies responsibility”. This is how ILOVEBELOVE was born, a swimwear brand, founded by Carmen Mª Castro with the support of Eduardo Santillana, a sustainable, ethical and ecological fashion project, designed to walk slowly in the world of fashion.Working with the intention of constant improvement. Investigating and carrying out responsible fashion with society and the environment, where we learn and grow every day.

ILOVEBELOVE was born in Almería, southern Spain, where we create our designs and they are made in a family workshop, with which we work as a team. This means that we can have control and knowledge of the development of our garments throughout the process. In addition to supporting the textile industry in our country. Our production is 100% local.

The designs are created in our studio, betting on timeless, classic and elegant design, giving each piece touches that make it special —we love playing with pattern making— where beauty and comfort come together, with the influence of our Mediterranean roots.

We use premium Italian fabrics, of the highest quality and excellent performance characteristics, with ecological certificate and mainly fabrics made from ECONYL® fiber, a 100% regenerated nylon fiber made from nylon waste otherwise polluting the Earth, like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic rescued from all over the world. Our editions are limited, but our designs are born with the purpose of longevity and timelessness, and you have also turned them into basic ILOVEBELOVE that cannot be missing from our website.

We are lovers of the sea and what it offers us to be in contact with it: peace, freedom, love, the essential. The beauty of the Mediterranean, the colors, the light, the architecture, are our inspiration.

ILOVEBELOVE was born with a clear vocation for simplicity, elegance and timelessness. We create swimsuits inspired by the Mediterranean lifestyle. Simplicity with a different touch that makes you feel special and, above all, that you feel that your purchase contributes positively to you and to the world.
